Hi, if you restrict food from a child in your home, they are more likely to have a negative relationship with food.

Basically meaning- YOU CAN CAUSE YOU CHILD TO HAVE AN EATING DISORDER AS AN ADULT.

This can include:

  • binge eating (all food or just certain foods or types of food)
  • bulimia nervosa
  • anorexia
  • Orthorexia

Please dont set your kids up to have issues in their adulthood… It really sucks.

This comes from me, an adult who suffers from binge eating and hormonal issues.. thise tied together and weight loss is practically impossible.

I was restricted and basically denied any “junk food” and sweets, and now.. that os what I turn to when I am angry, upset amd mostly when something goes against how I planned out.

It may not make sense to every one and that is totally okay… But please understand, healthy perportions is great but denied and restrictions and cause unhealthy knowledge.

12 Years.

My father, at lake erie

His happy places were fishing, watching NFL amd NASCAR.

He enjoyed a lot towards the end of his life, he worked hard and deserved it.

He had a lot of struggles in his 41 years on this earth.

I cant say he was the best man, person or father there was… But I sure can say he was perfect for me.

I was raised to be strong and independent. I was raise to know right from wrong. I was raised by a single father…

I didn’t know we were ever poor until I was older, but I had every thing I needed.

I was loved.

My dad was taken from my life was to soon. I was 14. In the past 12years he has missed my graduting with honors, serving 5years in the Navy. He missed the births of his grandsons and my marriage…

So many days I wish I could simply call him, or drive to his house…

I miss him.

Heres to 12 years… Amd more to come… Waiting til my kids are old enough to understand so I can tell them stories about him.

Lets stop with the political 9/11 posts😊

Its not about us forgetting the cops that aided and now we all hate cops. Its about the lives lost. All the first responders that assisted, nit just the cops. Its about those we lost in the war that followed. Its about remembering the brothers,sisters mothers, fathers, children, aunts, uncles, and friends lost.

Its about remembering the heartache that happened and how people came together.

Its not about muslims. Its not about Democrat vs republicans or if bush knew or not.

Its about a historical event that we lived through. That is now taught as a historical event is history class.

To those we lost, rest in peace. To those who suffer with physical or mental wounds, you are loved and your story matters
To those that helped save others and died, you died a hero. To those that helped save people and are still here, you are a hero.
To those whose lost loved ones, my heart goes out to you because this yearly reminder is not fair.

I was in school. I was in first grade. And i hope nothing like that day and the days that followed ever happen again.

I was 14

I was 14.

I was 14 when I walked in and found my father dead in his bed.

I was 14 when my world changed forever.

I was 14 when I gave up God. I was 14 when I realized I had basically no one in my corner anymore.

I was a child. I not only lost my dad, my only parent. But I was a child and found my dad dead.

You see lots of people lose their parents, even when they are still a child. Some handle it well other do not.

The one thing that is important hereYOU DO NOT GET TO DECIDED HOW A TRAUMA IMPACTS SOMEONE ELSE. YOU DO NOT GET TO DECIDE WHEN A PERSON SHOULD MOVE ON OR GET OVER THAT LOSS BECAUSE OTHERS DEAL WITH IT TOO.

They will handle it when the time comes. I am now 25 and just in the last year began to process it all. That is eleven years for me.

11.

Let that sink in.
